Somali peace conference getting underway


The Somali faction leader, Ali Mahdi Mohamed, has arrived in Djibouti to take part in the national reconciliation conference which is due to start tomorrow Tuesday.

However, he is the only principal warlord expected to attend. Other faction leaders have rejected the peace plan put forward by Djibouti, which envisages a transitional government to run Somalia for two years.

Clan leaders, civil rights activists, politicians and armed groups are due to attend the conference, at a village Arta thirty kilometres south of Djibouti.

The former president of the self-proclaimed Republic of Somaliland, Abdurahman Ahmed Ali, is also in Djibouti, although the authorities in Somaliland have rejected the Djiboutian initiative.
